Metal African figure Chess set. Board NOT included.. Height of King is 4" as are most of the primary pieces. Pawns are 2".. Bronze and gold (both sides have a patina). This set was purchased in US at a "next-to new shop" in approximately 1996. The set is in good condition. The set appears to be hand made and therefore does not have the uniform appearance of a mass produced set. The set has rarely been used and has mostly been storage or occasionally on display. I have been collecting chess sets and chess items for over 40 years and have collected well over 300 chess items. Now I am ready to sell some of them.
